詩篇 38

受苦者的祈求

大衛求上帝眷顧的詩。

1耶和華啊,
求你不要在發怒時懲罰我,
不要在烈怒下管教我。
因為你的箭射穿我,
你的手擊打我。
你的怒氣使我渾身是病,
我的罪惡使我骨頭朽爛。
我的罪惡滔天,使我不堪其重。
我因愚昧而傷口潰爛流膿。
我疼得彎腰駝背,
終日哀傷。
我的腰灼痛難忍,
我渾身是病。
我精疲力盡,徹底崩潰;
我心中悲傷,呻吟不止。
主啊,你知道我的渴望,
聽見了我的歎息。
10 我的心砰砰直跳,
氣力衰竭,
眼睛黯淡無光。
11 因我的疾病,朋友同伴迴避我,
親人遠離我。
12 謀害我的人設下陷阱,
想害我的人威脅我,
整天圖謀奸計。
13 但我像聽不見的聾子,
無法說話的啞巴。
14 我就像一個不能聽、不能辯的人。
15 耶和華啊,我等候你;
主,我的上帝啊,你必應允我。
16 我曾求告你,
別讓他們幸災樂禍,
在我失腳時沾沾自喜。
17 我快要跌倒,
我的痛苦無休無止。
18 我要承認我的罪過,
罪惡使我心裡惴惴不安。
19 我的仇敵勢力強大,
無故恨我的人不計其數。
20 我追求良善,
他們就恨我,以惡報善。
21 耶和華啊,求你不要撇棄我!
我的上帝啊,求你不要遠離我!
22 拯救我的主啊,
求你快來幫助我!

Psalm 38

Psalm 38[a]

A psalm of David. A petition.

Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
    or discipline me in your wrath.
Your arrows have pierced me,
    and your hand has come down on me.
Because of your wrath there is no health in my body;
    there is no soundness in my bones because of my sin.
My guilt has overwhelmed me
    like a burden too heavy to bear.

My wounds fester and are loathsome
    because of my sinful folly.
I am bowed down and brought very low;
    all day long I go about mourning.
My back is filled with searing pain;
    there is no health in my body.
I am feeble and utterly crushed;
    I groan in anguish of heart.

All my longings lie open before you, Lord:
    my sighing is not hidden from you.
10 My heart pounds, my strength fails me;
    even the light has gone from my eyes.
11 My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds;
    my neighbours stay far away.
12 Those who want to kill me set their traps,
    those who would harm me talk of my ruin;
    all day long they scheme and lie.

13 I am like the deaf, who cannot hear,
    like the mute, who cannot speak;
14 I have become like one who does not hear,
    whose mouth can offer no reply.
15 Lord, I wait for you;
    you will answer, Lord my God.
16 For I said, ‘Do not let them gloat
    or exalt themselves over me when my feet slip.’

17 For I am about to fall,
    and my pain is ever with me.
18 I confess my iniquity;
    I am troubled by my sin.
19 Many have become my enemies without cause[b];
    those who hate me without reason are numerous.
20 Those who repay my good with evil
    lodge accusations against me,
    though I seek only to do what is good.

21 Lord, do not forsake me;
    do not be far from me, my God.
22 Come quickly to help me,
    my Lord and my Saviour.
